I love seeing my FO being used. It really makes me feel great to know that the things I work so hard on are not just being thrown in a drawer somewhere. So here are a few pictures of some of my projects being “modeled”.
Pooh bear new born prop. How cute is she?
Just look at that tush!!!
Same baby but older and wearing the infamous pumpkin hat!
Mouse hat!! The first one I made.
Another mouse hat!!
Pink spingish hat. This one is neat since this is the second child to wear this hat! I don’t have a pic of the original owner but I love that it is still being used by new babies!
Jester hat!! Adorable!!
Old pic of Thing 2 rocking her booties I made her.
I made her this whole outfit to come home in from the hospital but since she was enormous none of it fit except the booties.
Thing 2 rocking her “knitty Titty”. Love these hats.
Old pictures of Vicious modeling a monster hat and a head band!
Not anything I made but here is a picture of Vicious making my Pom poms. Child labor at its best 🙂
Now off to finish up the hat I am working on and start on a diaper cover!
I spent all day yesterday getting my half finished projects completed. I turned of the computer, turned on some music, invited my oldest kids friend over, put the baby in a nap, and knit until I finished SOMETHING!
My mother in law loves hand knit dish cloths so I usually have atleast one on my needles at all time. She thinks they are the best gifts ever and I can make them in my sleep when I actually pick up the project and do it.
Very simple but it’s finished and that’s what matters. I ended up blocking it since the bond off corner was doing something weird and the blocking made it not look wonky. I will stick this in my bin for Christmas gifts.
I then picked up that football hat that I was so sure was going to be quick and finished it. I was correct, it was quick when I actually worked on it. It turned out so cute!! I plan to make another for my nephew for Christmas but with a different team patch. This is for a little boy turning the big 0-1 and his mom is a huge steelers fan. I can’t wait to send it to them.
I have been dying to make a granny square crochet blanket but the problem I was having was I didn’t know how to crochet. So to solve that problem I sat down and finally taught myself. Granted I can only do a single crochet right now but you got to start somewhere right? I made what will eventually be another dish cloth.
All in all it was a very productive day. I always feel so accomplished when thing are finished. Now to start on some of my orders and finish my entrelac scarf. Got to have atleast one WIP around. 🙂
I have spent the last several months knitting hat after hat after hat. Everyone I know decided this was the year to have babies and what better gift then a cute little hat to cover a bald little human head. Now that the last hat is in the finishing stages, I need to start on my gifts for Christmas. Only problem is I have no idea what to knit!!!
I am thinking maybe mittens for the nieces and nephews, hand towels for the inlaws and grandparents. Not sure what will be put on the needles for the men in the family. I am ready to get away from the round and round of hats for a bit though. Stay tuned for what is to come…
